Global real time collaboration using 3D FlexPod with Nvidia Grid. As data is getting larger, moving files around costs time - and is a security risk. The virtual Workstation powered by 3D FlexPod is designed with the user at its center and offers any kind of computer resource on demand, no matter what the size and resolution of the data. A medical image, cad drawing or seismic data cube is available globally using the joint power of 3D FlexPod and Netapp Data Fabric.

Analytics/AI Case Study
As Data is the new gold and AI is the new electricity, Manfred shares the NetApp Case Study on how NetApp IQ (previously Autosupport) reduced the Hadoop license cost by over 60% as well as cut ten times the Storage footprint and leverage NVidia GPU's from AWS using the Datafabric.

NVME, the new Storage protocol, helps to process and analyze the petabytes of data. NVME over Fabrics extend this for external Storage Arrays. NetApp leads here with E-series or with our Plexistore Acquisition.
